Thank you for your interest in supporting Glendon students, researchers and our beautiful campus. On a small campus like ours, your financial support goes even further to developing our capacity to inspire civic engagement, promote collaboration, and to empower students to become local and global changemakers. 

Our proud history as the first campus of York University is rich with stories of donors who made an impact through philanthropy. After all, our campus was originally created through a bequest!  To this day, our college would not exist without our dedicated Glendon alumni, friends and donors.  

While gifts to any area of Glendon are appreciated, each year we rally our community of donors to support a few key priorities so that together we can make a greater impact.


Thanks to two generous donors, your gift to Glendon’s Experiential Education Fund will be matched up to $15,000

Experiential Education (EE) is the application of in-class theory through hands-on experiences within the classroom, community or workplace. At Glendon, the inclusion of EE expands the impact of our programs and provides opportunities for our students to develop practical skills they will use as changemakers.

We strive to provide comprehensive access to EE for all students, regardless of the program of study. Your donations play a key role in helping us to reduce the financial and logistical barriers students may face in accessing EE.

Students seeking financial support complete one application to be eligible for multiple awards and bursaries administered through the Experiential Education Fund.


Many donors tell us that they were once recipients of financial aid, and this inspires them to give back each year. Now more than ever, supporting our students to alleviate the financial stresses of post-secondary education is critical.

More than 300 Glendon students are recipients of the generosity of our community, with gifts of all sizes to new and established bursaries, scholarships and other awards each year. In fact, 70% of funds donated to Glendon directly support students.

Thank you for encouraging our students to pursue their dreams with your gifts!

We would like to introduce you to four recipients of financial aid at Glendon and share with you the impact a gift can make in our student’s lives.




Every year, we publish our annual Donor Report that showcases the impact of our donors’ generosity.  View the 2020-2021 Donor Report here.
